Birthmarks share their beguiling new track ‘WAX’, taken from their debut album  ‘…And Then The Rain Stopped’ set for release March 27th 2020. Stripped back and laid bare,‘WAX unveils Birthmarks at their most vulnerable; Evoking a sense of intense intimacy with its sparse instrumentation and delivery, with lyrics that land softly and almost spoken…

“Wax is about sex and expectations. It’s about the different understanding between two people, what their relationship is and of what they want out of it. It’s about the temporary solace an encounter can provide and how sex can lead to a point of retrospection mentally. It’s about wanting to be used but not forgotten. It’s about the clouding of vision. It was the last song written for the album and its bare instrumentation was intended to reflect the intimacy of its subject matter.”
